About the Authors


Lauren Mattiuzzo

Lauren is the lead member of the Marketing team and oversees HeinOnline Support. She has been with the company for more than 20 years. When Lauren is not chasing around her tiny humans, she enjoys rooting on her favorite Buffalo sports teams, crushing a ride on her Peloton, and catching up on the latest true crime documentary with her husband. She is passionate about social justice and funfetti cake.



Stephanie Ruesch 

Stephanie is a member of the Hein Publications team. She joined Hein in April of 2012 preparing books and other content for digitization. After hours, Stephanie spends too much time binge watching anything and everything, hanging out with friends and family, and can be found on most Friday nights busting clay targets on the trap field. A dedicated volunteer at the Erie County SPCA, the highlight of her week is when she gets to teach all the good dogs some manners, give them their belly rubs, and feed them lots of cheese.



Lauren Zazzara

Lauren is the newest member of the Hein Marketing team, joining the company as a copywriter in September 2021. Originally from Rochester, Lauren moved to the City of Good Neighbors in 2018, but she hasn’t yet been to a Bills game. When she isn’t (loudly) typing away at her keyboard, you can likely find her reading a novel, drinking some hot tea, adoring her beloved cat Margaret, taking a nap, or cruising around town in her obnoxiously cute yellow VW Beetle.
